It is a lonesome Glee

by Emily Dickinson


Original Language English

It is a lonesome Glee --
Yet sanctifies the Mind --
With fair association --
Afar upon the Wind

A bird to overhear
Delight without a Cause --
Arrestless as invisible --
A matter of the Skies.

-- from The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson, Edited by Thomas H. Johnson
